9" x 12"
Painted on gessobord.
I have been working on two paintings at once. The portrait you see here and the Orange and Egg painting above. There are a lot of similar techniques you use in both still life and portrait painting. I was trying to focus on receding colors and advancing colors. Even thou Jeff's face has a warm shadow, I used cool colors to show receding colors on the lighted half of his face and warm colors to show advancing colors. I also try to show reflective background color on both sides where the face recedes.
